CATAMARAN BUILD – The Backbone of our Water Tanks (MJ Sailing Ep 204)

This week we step back in time and cover a few projects we did between getting the soles down – including adding the forward webbing to our bridge deck, which will eventually become our water tanks.

One of the main things, was glassing down the forward webbing on the bridge deck. Part of it is just for support, but the larger compartments, between bulkheads 4&5, will eventually be the spaces for our windlass/anchor chain, as well as our two water tanks (as far as we’re planning right now).

We also have it confirmed that a new shipment of vinyl ester resin is on its way, so we get busy working on another project which requires it, which is bonding the inner seam of where the hull sides were attached in July.

We hope you enjoy!

Much love from Annapolis!

CATAMARAN BUILD – Prepping for Floors (MJ Sailing Ep 202)

Floors under your feet just make life …. easier. So we figured it was high time we get working on ours. Before we can even think about laying them down though, there’s a number of steps we need to go through first to prep the area.

Through the plans given to us by Max Cruise Marine, we need to make 90 degree flanges, which will attach to the webbing inside each hull. Then once *those* are in place, we’ll have a larger and stronger surface to bond our floors to.

We hope you enjoy!!
